Bruno Rocca Nebbiolo Barbaresco Coparossa 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

The Rocca family originates from Barbaresco. Bruno Rocca took charge of the family business when his father died in 1978, and decided that all the wine produced by the estate would from then on be sold in bottle. Bruno now has 12 hectares of vineyards, of which 5 are planted in the prestigious Rabaja cru. Since taking over the estate Rocca has risen to the top of the quality tree in Barbaresco. Stylistically he is a consummate modernist, yet the great intensity of fruit is balanced by a typical Piemontese structure, and the character of the varietal is balanced by a judicious use of oak. The grapes come from the Rabaja vineyard in the commune of Barbaresco. Soils here are a mixture of tufaceous clay and sand. The vineyard is steep and is situated at an altitude of about 300m above sea level. The vines are approximately 20-35 years old with yields of approximately 38 hl/ha. This wine has good depth of garnet colour, and an intense perfume of dark fruit with a touch of smoke. On the palate it has the distinctive Nebbiolo structure, balanced by ripe blackberry fruit with a savoury, smoky depth. Powerful and concentrated, the savoury, elegant palate gives way to a long, fine finish. 94 points from Robert Parker.
